RAM AND EWE FAIR.
Christchukch, March 27
The annual Ram and Ewe Fair held by tbe Canterbury A. and P. Association commenced to-day on the Show" Grouunds, Ad*dington, with the sale of flock rams. The weather was fine, and there was a large attendance. The keen demand there has been this season for breeding ewes, in view of the fact that many of the farmers are go'mg to devote more attention to fheep than to grain growing, naturally caused more attention toj be taken in the ram fair. Breeding ewes are now higher in price all through the Dominion than they have been since the day the country was stocked. But this i 3 especially th'a case in Canterbury, and to supßly tbe eager demand the North Island, Southland, and the Chatham Islands have famished large consignments to this province.
